STATE 





Look not into the valley . . . Reach ever upward . . . 
Behold these hills . . . Thus far we've come ... Go 
forth to climb the mountains without fear and with ever- 
increasing ambition. 




"We give our regards to 'Wally,' 
Advisor of the senior class . . ." 



Our dedication is a small token to offer to one who has so long deserved the 
honor. 

Always ready to understand, to sympathize, to laugh, he has willingly helped 
us in our every need. 

With sincere respect, the love, the gratitude that is so rightfully yours, we

CHEERS! 

Let's give a toast, let's give a boast 

For the class of '54 
Whose history reads of noble deeds 
To remember evermore. 

The freshman picnic offered an oportunity for all the newly-entered students to 
become acquainted. Taconic Park was our first social meeting place. At the fresh- 
man dance, we really began to mingle as a result of the persistent urgings of the 
upperclassmen. 

Following these two eventful social affairs, we settled down to the task of constant 
study. That year our class gave to the already champion basketball team several 
sportsmen, some of whom remained to see our school through four triumphant 
seasons of defeat. The affair that was long remembered was the successful but 
never repeated Sadie Hawkins Dance, which was held by the girls as a last resort 
to bring out the friendly inclinations of the boys of the class. Our freshman year 
was a very enjoyable one in our historic annals. 

The sophomore year, however, brought a considerable change. Although the num- 
ber of the class was somewhat diminished as a result of various circumstances, the 
enthusiasm and initiative of the remaining students showed a definite increase. 

This year we were formally introduced to an annual activity of the college which 
combines healthful exercise, famous Berkshire scenic beauty, and bountiful aches 
and pains — the college hike to Mount Greylock. (Why is it that such a hike is so 
invigorating on the ascent and so exhausting on the descent?) We found, how- 
ever, that it does have its advantage — getting lost by twos on the way down. We 
held the annual Sophomore Prom, which was well attended, at the Masonic Tem- 
ple. Our class worked very hard planning and decorating. It was unanimously 
agreed that our work wasn't in vain. The Dorm Formal that year proved to be 
equally successful. The theme was "April in Paris" and provided us with a conti- 
nental atmosphere for a much enjoyed evening. Our class later participated in the 



revival of a custom of the college which afforded an opportunity to show-off the 
talents of each class. Our contribution to this Stunt Night satirized the television 
show of Martin and Lewis, with versatile talents ranging from a lovely chorus line 
of curvacious (a la balloons) cuties, golden voices and dancing feet to our own 
Margaret Whiting, Jim Wakely, and Corinne Calvert. We unfortunately missed 
receiving the prize, but we thoroughly enjoyed the presentation of our contribution. 
As we scrubbed the floors and walls spattered with sour chocolate cream pie, we 
vowed that the next year we would be less sincere and more tactful. In the spring 
the notorious, not to mention mysterious, social known as the Sophomore Picnic 
was held. This picnic was attended by a limited group with limitless possibilities. 
Our college was introduced that year to a new science teacher who drew gasps of 
admiration from the female section of the class. We labored under the cosmic eye 
of "Dr. John," who fortunately brought about a rebirth of the age-old search for 
truth. After final exams, however, a few of us realized that we still hadn't found 
it. 

Our Junior year brought a still smaller class back to the fold, but the size of the 
class was secondary to the fruitfulness. This year will long be remembered as the one 
of extreme sociability, musicals, plays, one o'clock permissions (which were shortly 
excluded), and a particular innovation credited to our class — the Winter Carnival. 
This festive occasion presented for the college a weekend of various activities de- 
signed to bring about a much needed respite for the drudgery of class work. The 
carnival consisted of a ball, which amounted to the mass importation of Williams 
College to Taconic Hall, a skating party which was never held, a snow sculpture 
contest which managed to produce three appropriate objects which melted before 
one had a chance to take pictures, and a hay ride which was so crowded that each 
had to take turns getting off and running. Despite the tribulations which accom- 
panied that affair, all the participants enjoyed themselves immensely, and the col- 



lege realized that the first Winter Carnival was a laudatory contribution to our col- 
lege life. 

The Junior Prom that year was held at a new location, The County Squire. This 
change of atmosphere, however, proved to be of such a drastic nature that the next 
formal was once again held at the Masonic Temple. 

Miss Boyden revived that year the custom of presentating a Gilbert and Sullivan 
operetta. Many members of our class demonstrated their usual diligence in the 
production of The Mikado. Kimonos and fans transported the audience into a Japa- 
nese setting appropriate for the graceful kowtows and shuffles of our left-footed 
chorus lines. As usual a large percent of the principals came from our talented 
class. The drama club play, The Velvet Glove, presented in the spring, starred 
many of us who gave sensitive interpretations of a reverent subject. The inclement 
weather failed to dampen the production's success. 

It was at this time that we became acquainted with a most charming author, Lu- 
ella Cole, to whom we owe much of our knowledge. The method courses, how- 
ever, resulted in one memorable day which we thoroughly enjoyed, our field trip. 
This excursion, with the aid of a detailed itinerary prepared by Dr. Mileham, 
brought us to points of interest in Pittsfield, Lenox and Stockbridge. One of the 
stopping points of the trip proved to be "for the birds." At Tanglewood we viewed 
the renowned music shed, opera house, and concert hall, after which we became 
acquainted with the art of raising shrubs. 

That year we won the prize for Stunt Night, our contribution being a picture al- 
bum, depicting our past experiences accompanied by a witty, running commentary. 
The quantity and quality of talent again brought us our deserved laurels . 

The senior year was an eventful one scholastically but uneventful socially because of 
the pressing demands of the training school. At the Mark Hopkins School we be- 



came aware of the pitfalls of the future. In our other semester we became acquaint- 
ed with the mad methods of measurements and Mr. Crowley. Dean Weston tried 
in vain with her pressure points, bandaging, and splinting to prove that aid given 
first is known as First Aid. Our abnormal psychology class brought us to the re- 
alization that we were all mesomorphs, endomorphs and ectomorphs, in varying 
degrees. 

Once again we filled the ranks of this year's Gilbert and Sullivan production, Pa- 
tience. Following this production the cast and workers gathered at Armstrong's 
Inn for pizza, thereby establishing a new and better repose for our leisure time. 
Later that year the drama club presented the melodrama, Dangerous Corner, whose 
cast was predominated by our fine acting talent. 

The spring brought anxieties about graduation and we all began worrying once 
more about our future; the marks being what they were, we rationalized by em- 
phasizing the demand for teachers. Also with the spring came our last fling at the 
Fishpond, where daily could be found a group of ardent health-hunting sun wor- 
shippers, each trying to beat the other for that glorious tan. We were introduced 
to a new swimming area, Howe Pond in the wooded wilds of Readsboro, Vermont. 
We didn't mind swallowing the water accidentally since we were informed that it 
was the town's reservoir. 

We enjoyed to our fullest the remaining activities of the year since we realized 
that these were to be our last weeks together. Our senior picnic proved to be of 
the usual type of nostalgic memories. And then the day of graduation arrived. As 

we clutch our diplomas with one hand and brush away the tears with the 
other we bid farewell, vowing to face the future with the same seriousness and 

fortitude that characterized our four years at North Adams State Teachers College. 

A toast once more for '54

Our major sport, basketball, has always been a 
nucleus around which the activities of the student 
body has centered. With pride we attended all of the 
games to cheer our team on. The players pooled 
their resources to show that they were really in there 
fighting. Success may not always have been ours, but 
we all retain the realization that a good game does 
not have to be a victory. Some games were won, but

even when trailing in score the team never gave up 
and always exhibited its spirit and sportsmanship. 
Thanks is extended to the five agile and spirited 
cheerleaders who gave such an impetus to the emo- 
tions of the spectators, to Coach Doran, who worked 
long and hard with the team members, and to Dr. 
Freel, who boosted the morale of the team both at 
home and on those long overnight trips.
